Since the last big patch, my game won't render ship textures correctly. It isn't showing the diffuse map, only the specular map. It looks like my (and everyone else's) ship is made out of stainless steel. It shows up OK in ship configuration tool, but won't render in space. I thought it might be a video driver issue so I updated to the latest driver. I am running a GeForce 9800 GT with driver v. 126.96.36.19958 on WIn 7. Additionally, when I come to the character selection screen, it is not displaying the uniform top. I have a TWOK uniform. I am invisible wherever that texture is supposed to be. So I have a floating head and hands not attached to anything. If I log a character out and come back in, it will show up. I am also getting an errant warp trail.
All of this is really cutting into the aesthetic of the game. Anyone have any ideas?
